To get the Eaglestrike armor set in Halo Infinite, you must take part in the free Fracture Entrenched event during Season 2. However, unlike the Rakshasa armor set, Fracture Entrenched is a timed event with an end date.

The first week of Fracture Entrenched will run from Tuesday, 24th May to Monday, 30th May in 2022. The previous Fracture Tenrai event came back for five more weeks after its first event period, and it's now been confirmed that Fracture Entrenched will also.

Similar to the 'main' battle pass, there is an event-specific pass for Entrenched which will require you to unlock a number of tiers to get and customise the Eaglestrike armor.

You must complete challenges specific to that Fracture event pass in the new Land Grab mode to earn tiers toward unlocking the Eaglestrike armor. These challenges will be marked with a different color in the challenges section.

Good luck unlocking the Rakshasa and Eaglestrike armor sets in Halo Infinite!
